Educate Me On Connecticut Beaches

Traveling to CT for a wedding in July. What are some good beach spots on the long island sound.

what part of CT?

they get better the further east you go. Unfortunately it's rare to get any decent waves since LI and Fisher's island do a good job of acting like a breakwater. I went swimming in Noank sunday, water was cold, but not too bad.

Hammonasset and Harkness and Rocky Neck are three of my favorites for Park-like beaches. If you like a busy beach with a carnival atmosphere, Ocean Beach in New London is fun. If you have boat access, there are plenty of additional options (Sandy Point, Ram Island, etc.) But if you want real waves you have to go to RI, Watch Hill, Misquamacut, etc.
